Long walks on the beach may be peaceful and romantic, but as the weather starts to drop below freezing, I think it is safe to say that those peaceful walks will have to be put on hold for the time being. With temperatures hitting the negatives, it is time to break out the fur coats and lapels because, let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to feel like they are living the Jay-Z life all winter long?

This Fashionista’s outfit is the perfect example of the ideal winter outfit. Through the use of different textures and colors, it creates a cohesive look we can all learn from this winter. One big problem we all run into when it comes to layering and wearing bigger coats during this time of year is that it is easy to look frumpy if you do not pick the right outerwear or if you layer too much clothing. One easy way to avoid this issue is by choosing a coat with an attached belt, or you can opt for something that synchs at the waist, giving you a less boxy and more hourglass figure, like with the coat this Fashionista is wearing.

Besides picking the perfect coat or outerwear piece, you also have to think about what you are going to wear underneath it all. It is easy to hide behind coats and not care about what you are wearing under them, but every aspect of an outfit is just as important as the others. This Fashionista does a great job of keeping the color palette of her outfit very cohesive. Playing around with different tones of browns and yellows makes each piece in her look stand out even more. To tie her look together, this Fashionista went for a pink head scarf and a pair of black ankle boots, which balance out her colorful ensemble.

One Simple Change: Want to convert this look into something more spring appropriate? Switch out the fur jacket and opt for a shaggy cardigan that could still keep you warm during those nippy, spring mornings.
